I can hear the trump-stumpers now, "See? It's not just 'Murica that has mass shootings!" Like that somehow makes it better. *I don't think I want to live on this planet anymore*

getting into an ivy league is all about status and connections. i went to a state school and one of my classmates won a scholarship to attend a few classes at harvard for a summer semester. when she came back in the fall i remember her telling people that the classes she took there weren't any better or more challenging than what we were currently taking.

Even without actually committing fraud to get into college, which is what the latest news is about, the rich have plenty of ways to directly and indirectly buy their kids' ways into college. There's still the big old fat donation route (totally legal), crazy expensive test prep services and tutors (I know one family who is paying $700 PER WEEK for a math tutor for their son), expensive activities, etc. Heck, my daughter goes to a public high school and is in band. $800 for the uniform, cost of instrument (varies, but we got a used one for $600), $1300 for a mandatory trip out of state for a competition (different trip every year), etc. Sports are even worse. You really think people struggling to pay rent can afford any of that?

Okay. I'm just going to go and beat up that homeless man who is responsible for all of my problems.

In response to a confession. THIS. I hate to admit this, but I'm guilty of toning down how I feel about this, because heaven forbid I make a man uncomfortable with the truth. Women can't even discuss this openly without fear of some idiot shouting not all men or being called a man hater. I love men who are compassionate, intelligent, and open to learning about inequality. The incels, meninists, and fragile man-children can eat a dick.

In response to a confession. Feminists, the majority of whom are women, already know about all of these things and preach them 24/7. But men, what? Need a special day to hear it from men? Men's day does absolutely NOTHING. I'm totally fucking over pretending like men are useful in the arena of human rights. Women are the ones doing the heavy lifting when it comes to saving people from rapists and pedophiles. Women are the ones who've gotten their teeth kicked down their throats, while being told to know their place. Women are saving the world, while men are crying about equal rights. Men are the ones who built the oppressive systems under which we live. Men are responsible for the wars and the famine and civil unrest. Men's day is so incels and fuck bois can pat themselves on the back and say, "Well, them women get their day. We get ours!" So, tldr, fuck men's day. They fucked up everything for everyone. They need to sit down, shut up, and learn from women. And I'm tired of pretending like they don't.

Men's day is generally used to raise awareness. Just because men are privileged over women doesn't mean there's not a lot of issues to discuss. Men are way more likely to commit suicide, and become homeless. More veterans tend to be male and veterans suffer with a lot of mental health issues. Prison rape is an epidemic which is more likely to affect men and is openly joked about even in kids films. 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused as children which there is less awareness of. I feel like it's pretty tacky to complain about men getting a day to raise awareness in the wake of Leaving Neverland and the issues it's bringing up about adults preying on any child. I hate MRAs because they complain about how women won't sleep with them over any real problems, but let's not pretend all men are the 1% of old white male CEOs who don't wanna share the pie. It benefits us to help everybody in society even if some of us are less privileged. And yes I'm a feminist.
